Agora, which means “gathering place in Greek”
Created by Magdalena Abakanowicz, this headless art installation in Grant Park features 106 nine-foot tall torsos.
Some seem to be walking, while others seem anchored in place.
Each sculpture weighs eighteen hundred pounds and while they look the same, they all have different details.
The project took the artist and three assistants from 2004 to 2006 to complete. Private donors included Robin Williams.
The artist said this about the sculptures:
“These aren’t really people. They are shell-like negatives of the human form. Think of them as bark falling off a tree."
